This week, 5th grade is continuing to read our novel study, Out of My Mind. We are beginning to think about research topics pertaining to our novel study. Some topics include Stephen Hawking, communication boards, ASL, Cerebral Palsy… I’m looking forward to seeing what students can find out!
Spelling was on hold this week due to DE testing, but it will be back next week As always remember to have your student read 20 minutes every evening.

In science this week, we will continue learning about weather. The students will learn about severe thunderstorms and lightning strikes. We will also look at ways in which human activities are making the environment more susceptible to disasters. In social studies, we will wrap up our chapter on the constitution and begin learning about the Bill of Rights. They will apply this knowledge to the rights and freedoms they enjoy.
